Valorant takes the best elements from the kings of multiplayer shooters only to be something that fails to stand out it in a crowded market. It’s not a bad game but there are so many better free to play multiplayer shooters.

Valorant is a fun and exciting tactical shooter but for the time being, it feels incomplete; and though it has some great moments and it can easily keep you playing past your first few matches, the overall presentation of the game is less compelling compared to other hero shooters.

Valorant's an excellent shooter with a lot of depth brought down by an intrusive anti-cheat program, limited game modes and characters, and mediocre art design.

After League of Legends, Riot Games has seemingly succeeded to create a competitive tactic FPS game with a real identity. The game lies on solid grounds at the state of its launch, which broke a record on Twitch. The question is to know whether the players will keep playing the game long-term with new content, and how the success will translate in esports.

As a hardcore shooter fan since the '90s, Valorant feels very well designed, and provides me with a rush I haven't gotten out of so many other big genre games in the past five years. But Valorant feels like it was meticulously designed in a laboratory to fault. It's fitting given that Riot has over a decade of data and esports experience, but the sterile feel of it does impact my decision to play it more regularly.

Valorant hooks you match after match with tight, tactical gameplay, albeit in rather barebones fashion.

Valorant doesn't stray too far from Riot Games' plethora of hero-focused titles. With the fusion of high-level gunplay and hero mechanics, Valorant is both highly competitive and unfortunately too highly skill focused for casual players to enjoy.

Valorant made a rather old game formula fun that even myself can't deny how delightful the sessions were. It manages to keep what makes the game fun and that's its core gameplay mechanics. So even if you're not a CS:GO veteran, worry not, because the skill-based matchmaking does its job right in placing you with players with the same level of performance and balances the teams.

Valorant offers fun in a simple but efficiently effective manner. Whether it’s getting used to an Agent and the abilities they offer, or the weapons that are available to use. The maps and modes allow each gameplay session to be extremely entertaining and fun as you and your teammates work on outsmarting your opponents.

Right now, in its current state, Valorant is in a great spot for a free to play game. Sure, the lack of maps and grindy progression system can be off-putting, but the core gameplay here is phenomenal. A great twist on the Counter-Strike formula.

An exciting and fun shooter with a huge potential and a questionable monetization. If you don't care about cosmetics at all, you can add one point to the final score.

Valorant brings competition to FPS genre once again thanks to its innovative approach. It's one of the most enjoyable games I've played recently and it'll be a pleasure to follow Valorant's roadmap.

Riot created Valorant to be the next big competitive first-person shooter. In our review, we discuss how Riot used hit games like CS:GO and Overwatch as inspiration to create a fun, competitive game that should last for years to come. While it has its pros, Valorant has some issues that prevent it from being the best it possibly can.

Valorant is a great mix of well-known online shooter mechanics. The developers haven't created anything unique or special, but they have nailed the most important aspect - Valorant is really, really fun to play. An additional success - almost everyone has now heard about this game thanks to the controversial marketing.

Valorant is not original. Rather, it's a successful interpretation of and expansion on its inspirations, with impeccable gameplay, well-designed maps, and a dev team eager to refine it further.

Valorant is likely to make a big impression on anybody that enjoys competitive shooters, even if it is a little light on content at the moment. Genre newcomers will need to stay patient to push past the initial difficulty curve, but its exhilarating combination of gunplay and agent abilities is accessible enough that reaping its rewards shouldn’t take too long.

Going up against the likes of Overwatch and Apex Legends, Riot Games' new release is an intense FPS that's fun to play with friends but a challenge to master.
